NATO student simulation: NATO after the Wales Summit challenges and perspectives

Publisher: Euro-Atlantic Council of Macedonia

Volume: 20 pages, pdf


Following the success of the previous NATO Student Simulations that the Euro-Atlantic Council of Macedonia have organized since now gathering more than 400 participants/students, this year we continued the tradition. The NATO Student Simulation is the only project of this type in the country which provides broad participation of the students from the universities in the country studying in the areas of security, international relations and political science. The simulation was conducted as a simulation of a Meeting of NATO Foreign Ministers where the representatives of the NATO members discussed the global issues and challenges one year after the NATO Wales Summit. Ultimately, the NATO Foreign Ministers adopted a declaration in which they outlined the future roles and missions of the Alliance. 

The NATO Student Simulation is a project of the Euro-Atlantic Council of Macedonia/YATA Macedonia through which the students from universities in the Republic of Macedonia who study law, political science, security and international relations, had an opportunity to see closely the manner in which NATO functions, the process of decision-making, what are the goals of the Alliance and its missions. With a combination of analysis, debates, negotiations and adoption of a Declaration, the students learned and understood the way NATO works and contributes to the discussion on very important global topics. The simulation gave the students opportunity to learn more about NATO, about its history and role, missions. Furthermore, the students had a unique chance to enhance their negotiation skills and behave like in real life politics, debate, compromise and make decisions.
